OCTOBER 18, 2007 -- Stratos Optical Technologies (search for Stratos), a wholly owned subsidiary of Emerson Network Power Connectivity Solutions, has unveiled a family of miniature transceivers designed to provide high performance and an ultra small outline for data rates up to 4 Gbits/sec.

The family initially consists of 850-nm devices for the Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet markets, as well as a 1310-nm product to address long-wavelength Gigabit Ethernet requirements. Stratos says it soon will release additional product line members for applications from OC-3 to OC-48, as well as custom devices (e.g., dual receiver). These transceivers are fully compliant with the IEEE Ethernet and ANSI Fibre Channel standards, but can be used for other data communications within their operating parameters, the company says.

The new series of mini transceivers is designed to enable system designers and OEMs to leverage the advantages of a small-footprint alternative to MSA telecom transceivers in situations where weight and overall equipment size are constrained.
